Just another day.

I thought I would post a blog because I keep looking at everyone else's blogs that I follow and no one has posted anything and I keep thinking for crying out loud when is some one going to post something. So I will post something! Although there really isn't anything exciting happening. I am working and excited that today is Friday because I will have part of the weekend off and that is good enough for me.

I am trying to get back in shape after all the vacationing and over eating! I have been doing my tae BO DVD that my mom brought me and I have been watching what I am eating. Yesterday I met up with my friend Alina and we went jogging and then today Sybilla and I went on a really long walk slash jog to the park. I guess it just takes time to get in shape it is so much easier to be fat hahahhaa. Tonight Alina and I might meet up again and hang out and if we take some pictures I will post some.

I am missing everyone at home and I am not sure why but some days are a lot harder then others. Like yesterday was awful I was really sad and kept feeling like crying and after Alina and I jogged I hung out with Grant and he wouldn't let me watch my show the hills even though I don't have cable where I work and never get to watch TV! He said the show was complete crap so instead we watched South Park talk about complete crap! Anyways Today I am fine hahhaha not sad at all! =)

In my time off I have been painting and drawing. I have also been trying to figure out what to do after I leave NZ, which feels like it is rapidly approaching! I only have a little less then 3 months left here and the time is flying by! I really can't wait to come home and see all my family and friends. I will be home in May till August, and then after August is what I am trying to figure out. My mom and I have a few trips planned for when I come home and also My cousin is getting married so there is a lot to look foward to.

I have two paintings that I am working on and a drawing that I will add pictures of when I finish with them. This is a small painting I did for fun, it looks a lot better in real life.

Back at work!

On Wednesday I met Anna and her cousin Brian at Swashbucklers for dinner. We had a great time but decided not to go out after dinner because Brian had just arrived that day from the US and was really tired.

I did two paintings of a design that I thought was cool. I gave them to Grant and they look really good in his/our room.

close up

On Saturday I had the second part of the day off So Grant and Krocket and I went to Devonport. There was a food and wine festival going on but it was too much to get in considering it didn't look like much was happening inside the gate. so we went to lunch and ate cafe food yum!

Krocket's 2 dollar glasses fell apart and I never laughed so hard!

After lunch we went to the dollar store and were able to amuse ourselves for at least 30 min.
It is a new week now and work is going to start all over again. Funny how that works.

My extra Vacation is over =(

SO on my unexpected week off I was able to visit some friends in the South Island Wanaka! I had an excellent time. The weather again was not what I expected but thankfully I had packed some pants cause it ended up being pretty cool most of the time. The trip was great mainly we worked in the vineyard, cutting the extra grapes that wouldn't be used off and taking off the extra leaves that block the sun. I never imagined how much work went into a vineyard and making wine.

This is Andrea after she had been mowing the lawn. She works really hard!

This is Jessie the Cat

Two of Lucinda's friends were biking through the south island and came to stay for a couple nights so they could take a small break.

These are the Flowers that Lucinda got from her boyfriend Joe for Valentines day.

Some of their Friends came over for dinner one night.

At the end of the trip I got a bus to the airport. Below is Lucinda and Andrea.

Me and Lucinda

Grant picked me up from the airport and he has a mustache now hahahhaha

I can never get a good pic!
and he even got me flowers for Valentines day and we went to dinner! It was really cute! The funny thing is when we got back to the house he was like hide the flowers I don't want the roommates to see hahahaha I guess it is uncool to get flowers!

Hello From the South Island!

Hello everyone! Sorry there won't be any pictures in this blog because I am currently in the South Island visiting with our family friends Andrea and Lucinda.
Since I have arrived we have been on a truly relaxing vacation just as if I was at home. The weather has been crazy! When I arrived it was really hot then the next day it was cool and raining in the morning then hot in the afternoon and today it has been raining and it is freezing only 40 degrees. I don't mind the cool weather, it is a nice break from the humid and heat of Auckland.

Yesterday we worked on the vineyard all day cutting down the huge branches and pinning up the other branches that were sticking out. It was a good workout and a lot of fun.

Ok so I have been painting on the few days I had off. These are really blurry pictures but I couldn't be bothered retaking the photos plus they look better blurry hahhaha.

These are just for fun!

Below is a painting I did for the friends that I am going to visit in the South Island next week.

Its 840pm and its Saturday and I am staying home! Imagine that! All my friends are busy. Anna moved away and isn't texting me back, Alina is off with some guy on some goat Island (who knows what that is) and Grant is at a Bachelor party which they call a stag party here.
SO I am left to do more art!

I could go out by myself but I don't really feel like it. I miss everyone at home!
Oh My God I almost forgot to write what happened to me last night!
I went to sleep early cause I had to be up at 7am for work. I go to sleep with the window open cause it is really hot here but I have the curtain down covering the window (there are no screens here is NZ). I am totally asleep and I feel the pillow next to me moving like as if someone is taping it, so I roll over and there is a brown cat next to my head!!!! By the way we don't have a cat! I recognize the cat, I have seen it around out side and it is nice thank god, but talk about freaked out! I jumped up and shooed it outside and was totally scared ( I don't even really like cats, they scare me). I fell back asleep but then woke up about 10 min later and turned on the lights and looked under the bed just to make sure it was really gone hahahaha! From now on I close the window and sweat it out!

Meeting Friends

Here is a picture of Sybilla, she is getting so big!

Saturday night we went out for Anna's last weekend in Auckland! She had a great time!
Its a Grant sandwich! hahhahaha

February 1st around 1230 I met Mike and Sherry at the Ferry Building. It was great to talk to them about their travels around the world and to see friends from home. The day turned out to be one of the best, really clear and hot.

This is the ship they are traveling on.

The three of us after a good lunch at Portofino.
